Evaluating Potential Impacts on Groundwater of Passive Composting of Spent Mushroom Substrate According to Best Practices Guidelines

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

By installing monitoring wells for groundwater, soil-water samplers, and probes to measure the conductivity in soil and groundwater, researchers are testing whether Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection guidelines for passive…

Ecotoxicity Study for Mayflies Exposed to Elevated Concentrations of Chloride

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

Chloride concentrations in surface waters have been increasing over the last several decades at multiple locations throughout the United States. At times, it appears that ambient chloride concentrations now reach…

Metaecosystems and the Upstream Legacy: Influence of Dissolved Organic Matter on the Structure and Function of Streambed Bacterial Communities

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Investigators explore how the quality of organic molecules changes with distance downstream and how those changes influence the composition of the communities of streambed microbes using that food resource. The…

American Chestnut Foundation Leaf Feeding Study

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

In an effort to restore chestnut trees to watersheds, blight-resistant varieties of American Chestnut have been developed over the last several years. This study uses the growth and survivorship of…

Experimental Streamside Forest Restoration to Improve Water Quality: Buck Run

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project involved an experimental planting of 900 trees and shelters on 2.2 acres of riparian land along Buck Run in East Fallowfield, Pa. The project was designed to test…

Experimental Streamside Forest Restoration to Improve Water Quality: Buck Run

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project involved an experimental planting of 300 trees and shelters on 0.7 acres of riparian land along Buck Run in East Fallowfield, Pa. The project was designed to test…

Collaborative Research: Coupled Geochemical and Geobiological Characterization of Dissolved Organic Matter Oxidation to Carbon

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

As microbes process dissolved organic matter from leaves that fall into streams, they release CO2 into the atmosphere. Scientists are studying stream networks from two different climatic regions to identify…

Developing a Water Atlas for the ACOSA Region of Costa Rica

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Center biologists are working with researchers and managers in the ACOSA region of southwest Costa Rica to collect and disseminate information on streams and rivers to a variety of…

Water Quality Impacts of the Interoceanic Highway in the Eastern Andes Amazon Headwaters Region

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This collaborative involved conducting a comprehensive assessment of water quality impacts for streams and rivers intersected by South America’s first transcontinental highway, which bisects the Amazon Basin from the Atlantic…

The New York Project

300 201 Stroud Water Research Center

In 2000 Stroud Water Research Center was awarded a grant to conduct a six-year study to monitor and evaluate water quality and sources of pollution in the streams, rivers, and reservoirs that provide New York City’s drinking water.
